In celebration of Rare Disease Day, I am excited to share our most recent draft class from the 2024 Young Investigator Draft! This year we highlighted the significant potential of research in this space when powered by the platform of sports—especially as we surpassed our $1 million in total funding granted. You can watch a recap of the event at the below link!

When my daughter was diagnosed with WAGR syndrome, none of the doctors that were treating my daughter knew anything about WAGR. Since that time, I’ve dedicated my time and energy to advocate for my daughter, spreading awareness of WAGR throughout my local and the international communities.

Rare diseases affect hundreds of millions of people globally, presenting a massive challenge to health equity. Our team is focused on changing that sad reality for patients across many therapeutic areas. From rare cancers such as the one that took my sweet cousin Ryan last year to rare cardiovascular diseases, I’m proud of how hard our teams work every single day to improve the standard of care for rare disease patients. Their passionate and purposeful commitment to saving and improving lives is not just a job; it’s creating meaningful change for our loved ones, their caregivers, and for humanity as a whole.

Jim Geraghty said it best today at the 9th Annual Rare Disease Day Event at the Broad Institute. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint,” when it comes to rare disease research. Always a science-focused and inspiring event at the Broad!

With approval of the first treatment to use gene editing to address a genetic rare disease, plus all the very recent innovations in base editing, prime editing, and lipid nanoparticle delivery, I’m hopeful we’ll see an ever-increasing number of gene editing programs in development for patient communities with genetically driven rare diseases. Kudos to the pioneers with development programs for rare cardiovascular diseases, rare blood cancers, rare hemoglobinopathies, rare bleeding disorders, rare metabolic disorders, rare neuromuscular diseases, and rare inherited retinal diseases!
